Wrestling with whether to label yourself a coffee connoisseur or a foodie? Who says you have to choose? If chefs around the world have made use of ground coffee in their signature dishes for years, why can’t you do it, too?

All you need is the right recipe — fortunately, we’ve given you plenty to choose from — and you’ll see just how well the culinary and coffee worlds collide.

Homemade Kahlua

The best way to kick off a Kahlua coffee recipe roundup is with a step-by-step guide to make Kahlua itself. Besides, it’ll take quite a bit of coffee liqueur for you to make everything else on this list, so learning how to make it yourself can save you a few bucks and trips to the store in the long run. We like Vegan in the Freezer’s recipe; it’s easy to follow, and it doesn’t take too much time to whip up.

Espresso Martini co*cktail

Sometimes, you need a more sophisticated drink in your hand, and when that’s the case, we highly recommend you have a good espresso martini co*cktail. A few ounces of your favorite espresso, a bit of vodka, Kahlua, simple syrup, and a co*cktail shaker are all you need to sip in style...well, all of that, plus our easy-to-follow recipe.

Hot White Russian co*cktail

Normally, the white Russian is served over ice, which is fine when the temperatures are warmer and the sun is going full force. When the colder winter months come around, though, you’re going to want something hot in your cup. Enter the hot white Russian. It still uses all the good stuff — a.k.a., vodka and Kahlua — but you’ll need hot brewed coffee and warm cream instead.

Pumpkin spice and everything nice, that’s what good coffee is made of...or something like that. Maybe that’s not exactly how the saying goes, but we can at least confirm that’s what this beverage is made of. And by “everything nice” we, of course, mean Kahlua. Fall-themed happy hour, anyone?

Irish Coffee with Kahlua and Coconut Cream

You may have sipped Irish coffee before, but we’re willing to bet you haven’t had it quite like this. Most recipes call for Irish whiskey, black coffee, sugar, and whipped cream, but this one from Lori and Michelle adds Kahlua and whipped coconut cream to the mix. It’s a bit different from the traditional version of the drink, but this variation is still delicious!

Happy Caffeinating!
